Classic Online Slots That Deserve A Sequel Hero

Slots that desperately need sequels to show all these young slots how its done

There are literally thousands of slots available online, but sometimes there can be instant classics that just appeal to all slot enthusiasts. A rare few slots become cult classics and become staple games within the online slot community.

The tragedy is that many of the classics were never given a sequel and players just had to imagine what the possibilities could be. Here at Slot Gods, we are dedicated to providing you with all the online slot information you could possibly need so it’s only natural that we put together a wish list of potential sequels. Without further ado, here are just a few classic online slots that deserve a sequel.

Immortal Romance

Name:
Immortal Romance
Developer:
Microgaming
RTP:
96.86%
Max payout:
12,150x stake
Volatility:
High
Reels:
5
Win lines:
243
Theme:
Horror
Release date:
5th Dec 2011

Originally released in 2011, Immortal Romance has had many upgrades throughout the year. It’s a horror themed slot with a story at the centre all about a forbidden romance. Impressively, the game’s paytable tells you all about each character with their own biography and story that’s even narrated to you. Microgaming’s Immortal Romance showed that slots could deliver creative and innovative stories, whilst not substituting any of the gameplay.

It’s clear that a sequel deserves to be released to further the story of Amber, Sarah, Troy and Michael. The popular Chamber of Spins could return with further improvements as well as added bonuses and perhaps even a jackpot. Everyone is dying to see what Microgaming could do with a sequel and we’re certain it’ll be a cult classic just like the first game.

Starburst

Name:
Starburst
Developer:

RTP:
96.10%
Max payout:
50,000 coins
Volatility:
Low
Reels:

Win lines:

Theme:

Release date:
12th Nov 2013

One of the most popular slots of all time, Starburst is iconic for its simple yet effective gameplay that captured everyone’s attention. The dazzling visuals mixed with the catchy music showed that online slots didn’t have to be obnoxious and could have a unique style. It’s literally perfect for high rollers with the 50,000x your stake payout and new slot players with the easy gameplay.

Whilst Starburst is clearly a legend within the slot community, it does lack a few staples that most players would deem as essential for modern online slots. A sequel could add so much to the series such as free spins or multipliers. With the charm of the original Starburst mixed with new added features, the series could be unstoppable with a sequel that could stand the test of time.

Aloha! Cluster Pays

Name:
Aloha! Cluster Pays
Developer:
NetEnt
RTP:
96.42%
Max payout:
10,000x stake
Volatility:
Low
Reels:
6
Theme:
Tiki
Release date:
25th Mar 2016

Arguably the first slot to introduce the Cluster Pays mechanic, Aloha! Cluster Pays reinvented how we play online slots avoiding the traditional payline system. You could now win by just matching up 9 or more symbols for even bigger payouts. Not only that but the tiki theme and mechanics sure added to make Aloha! Cluster Pays an iconic slot.

Since the original release in 2016, there have been many clones and versions of Cluster Pays but no honest sequel to Aloha! Cluster Pays. Sure, there is a Christmas themed version of the original game but nothing new or original. Imagine returning to the serene island in Aloha! Cluster Pays but with even more features and mechanics such as added multipliers or some sort of jackpot. It could even expand on the Cluster system to create something even more revolutionary.

Cleopatra

Developer:

RTP:
95.02%
Max payout:
10,000x stake
Volatility:
Medium
Reels:

Win lines:
20
Theme:
Egyptian
Release date:
8th Jan 2012

There’s no denying that IGT’s Cleopatra showed exactly how rewarding an online slot could be and that the Egyptian genre was one worth exploring. With regal colours and extravagant Egyptian symbols, Cleopatra set a landmark for how Egyptian slots should be portrayed. Sadly, so many developers saw this and blatantly copied the whole aesthetic of Cleopatra.

It originally released in 2012, and there have been so many Egyptian slots looking and playing awfully similar to Cleopatra. None have reached the mega limit of 180 free spins like Cleopatra, but they have added modern features. It’s clear that the Queen of Egyptian slots deserves a fresh coat of paint and modernising. The developers added a progressive jackpot to the slot in 2015 version Cleopatra MegaJackpots, but that’s about it. A sequel to the legendary Cleopatra could revitalise the Egyptian genre and add something truly unique to make it feel fresh.

Chests of Plenty

Jackpot:

Reels:

Win lines:

Theme:
Pirate
Release date:
25th Sep 2011

Let’s face it, pirate themed slots are usually hit or miss. Arguably one of the first entertaining pirate slots, Chests of Plenty had everything you could ever want in a slot when it released in 2011. Since then, there’s been a whole Pirates’ Plenty series and even a Kingdoms Rise slot dedicated to pirates. It’s time that Chests of Plenty got a much-needed sequel to fix the minor issues from the first game to make it a truly memorable slot.

Chests of Plenty was revolutionary in 2011 with a progressive jackpot and multipliers but sadly lacked free spins and respins. The design and overall aesthetic of Chests of Plenty provides the right amount of cheesiness whilst remaining a tasteful design. Playtech clearly has the creativity and power to create a legendary sequel - there’s literally nothing stopping them. We’d love to see a sequel to Chests of Plenty that brings all the outstanding qualities from the original and mixes it with extra features.
